Select an audit option (standalone, combined, or unannounced combinations) and schedule your CAPS certification audit with your nominated certification body. The certification body will indicate an approximate duration in the audit plan.
Once your site has been deemed to comply with the CAPS requirements and all site nonconformities are closed, you will receive a 'Certificate of Recognition'. Your site details will be added to the Purity-IQ CAPS register. Your certificate will be valid for one year.
To maintain CAPS certification, ongoing surveillance audits are required.
